HISTORY OF THE FLOWER MARKET
"And so, the Flower Market stands not only as a notable landmark for the industry, but also as evidence of an American tradition: achieving prosperity through cooperation and hard work breaking down racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic barriers."
"Since 1928, the San Francisco Flower Market has called SOMA home, and has been at its current location at 6th and Brannan since 1965. Today, the San Francisco Flower Market is looking to make Potrero Hill its new home for future generations of local sellers, growers, florists, and other local retail shoppers. 901 16th Street will be the workplace to over 350 employees, revitalizing an underutilized block while preserving the character
and blue-collar history of Potrero Hill."
